First Night of AWANA

Tonight was the first night of AWANA. I'm helping Michelle teach the 6th grade girls. I guess it would be the 6th grade, but no boys showed up. This makes me sad because there were several boys last year and I really enjoyed having them in class. Hopefully, they will come back sometime this year.
Tonight we had 8 girls in class. I was sad that none of "my" boys came back. Hopefully, they will come back later in the year.

Handbook time

I was so glad that "Emilemily" (see earlier post) - Emily and Kirstin were able to come tonight. Josh also brought Carson. Next week, Callie wants to come and hopefully, Braiden will be able to make it. Emily was a little scared, but of course, she is only 5. Afterward she told me, I think I'll keep going to my school. *sweet*

Emily and her Bible
I gave Carah and Cate their purses and hairbows tonight. They were TOO CUTE!!!!

Brother Michael brought a great message about letting God take care of our problems and to stop trying to solve them ourselves (was he talking to me????). It was very age appropriate and I hope the T&T kids heard the message. I loved his example of the confused state of the Egyptian army who were chasing the Israelites across the Red Sea. You see, I KNOW God has a good sense of humor. He uses it on me regularly!

Michelle and I looked really excited???

I hope the kids have a great year. I hope I can encourage them in some way, be a good role model and have fun with them.

Tell Research and Development that the bling on Cate's purse isn't up to a 3 1/2 year old's standards. She's loved it all off!
